What personal data I collect and why
If you submit a message via the contact form, your provided information will simply be emailed to me, the site owner. Your information will not be saved into the site’s database and will not be used for remarketing purposes.
My site uses CloudFlare for better security against online threats, specifically bots crawling the site looking for vulnerabilities. CloudFlare is also used to optimise website performance to give you, the visitor, the best possible user experience. A cookie is used to identify individual users on a shared IP address and apply security settings on a per-client basis. The cookie allows CloudFlare to identify visitors and challenge their legitimacy if necessary. The cookie is also used so that approved visitors are not challenged twice. The information gathered does not correspond to any user ID in your web application, and does not store any personally identifiable information. Read more.
In order to check login activity and block potentially fraudulent attempts, the following data is collected: attempting user’s IP address, attempting user’s email address/username (i.e. according to the value they were attempting to use during the login process), and all IP-related HTTP headers attached to the attempting user.
This feature also tracks failed login attempts along with their IP address, attempted username or email address, and user agent information. A cookie is set following the simple math question (jpp_math_pass) for 1 day to remember if/when a user has successfully completed a math captcha to prove that they’re a real human.

I also monitor website traffic via WordPress.com. Collected data includes IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code.
Important: I do not have access to any of this information. For example, I can see that a specific page has 285 views, but I cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post. Stats logs containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) are retained by Automattic (the plug-in developer) for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature.
Activity Tracked: Post and page views, outbound link clicks, referring URLs and search engine terms, and country. Page load performance is also tracked in order to make sure that plugin and code that powers this feature is not causing performance issues.
How long I retain your data
Contact form entries will be kept for a maximum of six months.
What rights you have over your data
You can request that I erase any personal data that I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
